Joined CIRAD in 2002 (www.cirad.fr, Montpellier) and CIRED (www.centre-cired.fr, Paris). Has been involved in several international research projects (value sharing in the cocoa-chocolate industry, agricultural greenhouse gases emission/sink, food-biofuel competition in land use). In 2006, began to develop Agribiom, a quantitative tool for analysing the world’s production, trade and use of biomass, in order to undertake collective future scenario-building such as “Agrimonde” (Paillard, Treyer & Dorin, 2011), hybrid models such as the “Nexus Land-Use” (Souty, Dorin & al., 2012) and worldwide analyses on labour productivity and structural transformation (e.g. Dorin 2017).
In February 2014, came back to India as CSH’s head of “Economics and Development”. Was promoted in 2018 “Chevalier” (Knight) in the Order of Agricultural Merit by the French Minister of Agriculture.
Is author or co-author of many academic articles and official reports, in addition to five books in English: “National Identity and Regional Cooperation” (Delhi, 1999), “The Indian Entrepreneur” (Delhi, 2003), “Agricultural Incentives in India” (Delhi, 2004), “Agriculture and Food in India” (Delhi, 2009), “Agrimonde: scenarios and challenges for feeding the world in 2050” (Versailles, 2011; Springer, 2014).
